  1. The facility I work at provided large orange buttons that say “Vaccinated against COVID-19” which I just attached to my badge, and other PAs/docs/nurses/staff have also worn them as a “We walk the walk” approach to showing patients that we embrace these vaccines and would hope they do as well
  2. Locked for unauthorized advertising on the forum for commercial purposes
  3. Nothing? This truly is landmark for our profession. We finally have the largest payor allowing us to be able to control our own financial destiny by billing and being reimbursed for the care we provide. And many third-party payors take their cue from Medicare. It all begins here. This was the single biggest thing we could’ve done to advance our profession. Name change doesn’t have the same impact, because at the end of the day money talks- and if you can’t control your financials as a provider, you ultimately don’t have a path forward autonomous of everyone else
  4. FINALLY!!!!!! https://www.aapa.org/news-central/2020/12/coronavirus-relief-omnibus-agreement-authorizes-pas-to-receive-direct-payment-under-medicare/
  5. Got my first shot yesterday morning before my shift- completely fine yesterday, and then some chills this morning that resolved with motrin + tylenol Second shot in 3 weeks
  6. It’s constantly astounding to me that “whataboutism” is still considered by some people as a valid logical argument
  7. Totally agree, and this is more for younger PAs or PA students who are reading this- Once you let that genie out of the bottle, there’s no putting it back in. At the least you become the person that everyone figures out they can go to for a script and it’s harder and harder to say no. If you hold your ground and don’t do it, people eventually stop asking you. The worst one I had was an ER tech at a hospital I used to work at who asked for a percocet prescription- he did have a legit finger injury though that had already been treated. I was floored he even attempted to ask
  8. You know why we didn’t have mandatory masks and shutdowns during H1N1? Because we very very quickly had a vaccine available
  9. The PA Forum was around long before the Huddle, and will likely be here long after it as well
  10. What specific program are you referring to? UT San Antonio? UTMB in Galveston? UT Southwestern? UT RGV? All these programs have their own forums
  11. Wow Ventana you're right- the last several articles going back several months are ultimately ads for malpractice insurance
